Cancer Treatments We Specialise In

Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is the most common Cancer in males – worldwide. In India, Lung Cancer is commonest single Cancer in most of the states surpassing oral Cancer. Cigarette smoking and tobacco chewing is a common cause of this Cancer, although more than 40 percent are due to other factors like genetic, environmental, etc.

Most cases of Lung Cancer in India is detected in the advanced stage and chemotherapy is the only treatment. With the good chemotherapy drugs and targeted treatment, the average overall survival in this group is increased from 4 months to one and a half year. Lung surgery in the form of lobectomy and in some cases resection of the bronchial segment to save the uninvolved lung called sleeve lobectomy is performed.

Due to excellent post-surgical support in the form of dedicated intensive care units our postoperative management is very satisfactory.

Primary mesothelioma of the lung and pleural cavity is a rare disease and treatment in some cases in Pleuropneumonectomy. This is probably done only at Rubyhall Clinic in the state of Maharashtra. This surgery cures patients who have disease limited to only a lung on one side. With the boom in constructions incidence of mesothelioma is increasing due to exposure to asbestos in constructions related personnel.

Head & Neck Cancer

More than 30 percent of Cancer occurs in the oral cavity and throat. Tobacco in different forms and alcohol abuse is the main reason for the increasing incidence in India. Ruby Hall Clinic, being a tertiary care institute and prominent cancer institute in India, receives a large influx of Oral Cancer patients. Most of the patients are male and young. Tongue Cancer and Oral Buccal Cancer is most common in this category. Most of these patients are in the curative category but require extensive treatment in the form of surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy.

Ruby Hall Clinic is a pioneer in aesthetic surgical methods, cosmetically acceptable results with minimal functional morbidity. Free tissue transfer, one of the most important aspects of this surgery is common in Ruby Hall. Oral defects resulting in an inability to open mouth and facial disfigurement is avoided by free fibular bone flap molded in the shape of the excised segment of the jaw bone and implanted with microvascular anastomosis. Further research to insert dental implants in this transferred bone is going on.

Image-guided radiotherapy resulting in fewer complications is giving very good results. Annually more than 500 patients undergo this surgery at Ruby Hall and remain free of disease.

Post-treatment rehabilitation in the form of physiotherapy, diet modification advice, dysphagia and speech clinics are also available at Ruby Hall.

Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer is one of the few cancers which is showing a trend of decline from its peak world over. However, in India, the story is different, due to rapid urbanization and multiple socioeconomic factors. Occurrences of breast cancer have increased and it has become the number one cancer in women in India, surpassing Cervical Cancer. However, more than 80 percent of patients diagnosed with this cancer are cured with modern treatment.

Ruby Hall clinic started the endevour of excellence in the treatment of breast cancer quite early. One of the first center to offer breast conservation surgery in India and amongst very few to offer sentinel node biopsy in 2004. Comprehensive set up of state of the art pathology Department, Radiology Department to diagnose early tumours with minimal invasive needle biopsies and treating small non-palpable breast cancer has been a long strenuous journey. Aesthetic results with oncomammoplasty is standard practice at Ruby Hall clinic. Free tissue transfer, DIEP Flap, TRAM flap, pedicled flap are done by a team of expert senior plastic surgeon trained in USA and UK.

Scientific research and finding new treatment avenues and making life better for breast cancer patients is been a constant effort for many years. In this regard, Ruby Hall organises bi-annual international conference to get the experts in the field together to deliberate the best treatment options and is aptly labeled as ‘Recent Trends in Breast Cancer’. Multiple scientific papers are published in international and national journals on novel methods of treatment for breast cancer. Maharashtra Medical University fellowship affiliated to the state government in breast cancer is started for training young surgeon in this complex field.
